Is there a generally-accepted target figure for camber in sidecar design? Zero? Positive? Negative?

I assume caster is zero?

How about the range of toe-in adjustment?

See attachment.

Toe in also depends on factors such as wheel base of the bike as the longer the wheel base the larger the measurement you will have as you are reading over a longer length. Type of tire also makes a difference. Automotive tires take a bit more toe then motorcycle tires.
